SQLSaturday #407 in Vancouver, BC
SQLSaturday #407 in Vancouver, BC is happening on June 27, 2015 at UBC Robson Square, 800 Robson Street, Vancouver. SQLSaturdays are one day free training events for SQL Server professionals. SQL Server professionals have developed a pretty tight knit community over the years, and this is one way of sharing information, learnings, experiences and best practices on the product. This event is also volunteer-driven – the organizers and presenters volunteer their time and effort to help foster the #SQLCommunity.
Sessions delivered range from SQL Server Administration, Development, Business Intelligence Application, Business Intelligence Delivery, and Professional Development.
